100 thoughts on “Turkey threatens action against US-backed Syrian opposition forces

  1. Trump doesn't have time for being loyal to our longtime allies the Kurds. He has to distract from his crimes.
    Putin ordered Trump to fire Mattis and Bolton and lay down like the owned bi*ch he is.

    God help us.

  2. Putins logic:
    "The less NATO members the better. Breaking up the EU is even better. Causing political chaos in the US. Thats GOLD."

  3. All this wars could be avoided if USA didn't invaded Iraq. Now we are dealing with the consequences of that stupid policy

  4. The Turkish shall be allowed access to Syrian land based on UN charter for humanitarian purposes only and not to clash with their Kurdish neighbors.

  5. The war in Syria, Iraq and in Turkey is all about an emerging nation of Kurdistan. The Kurds were denied autonomy from the British and the French during the Colonial era, and to this day the Kurds hold part of Iraq, part of Turkey and part of Syria, and are not aligned with Russia or Iran or Turkey, but have had support from America. This is an example of the news media not educating the viewers to the historical reasons there is civil war in Syria, and now the Kurds have been isolated and kept from having a Nation.
    The violence in Turkey and it's revival of totalitarian regimes, is because the Kurds are about one third of the present day Turkey, and want to secede and join with the Kurds in northern Iraq and in Syria, to form their long awaited bid of a new nation dedicated to self determination . But the Media has concealed this history from the viewers in America, and given a false and deceptive explanation for the rebel armies in Syria . The trend is yet against Nationalism for various peoples of the world to have self determination ,and instead Global Empires vie for domination over nations.

  6. Wow Turkey just spoke like Iran clerical mullah's and Turkey was holding USA pastor in prison with made up false accusations and attacking religious freedom.
    NATO, USCIRF, FTC, Energy, UK-EU-Mediterranean gulf can put some burning coal on the tongue of the arrogance. Also Syria joint work with Turkey in killings of ethnic cleaning and displacement of people under Obama presidency, John Kerry, Joe Biden, Hillary R Clinton is a key to investigate. How about Ban Ki Moon as UN Secretary General worked for Dalai lama buddhism ideologies mating with Islamic mullah's along with Hindutva India link's with China communism.

    A whole concentration of evil leadership and Anti-Semitic religious hatred priest's.

  7. Pay attention American allies, this is what trump will do to you: The Guardian: US to let Turkish forces move into Syria, abandoning Kurdish allies.
    trump extorts help from foreign countries to hurt American citizens, he'll do the same to you.

  8. Millions of Syrian refugees are living in Turkey, many inside massive, overflowing camps near the border with Syria.

    Turkey is trying to relocate them… back in Syria. But the security conditions are bad. So, Turkey will deploy its own military over there, in order to make sure that returning civilians won't be massacred.

    And there's nothing the US nor the Kurds can do about it.

  9. Turks believe Usa is Arming and training terörist (pkk,Ypg, also Isis is by Turks seen as Usa backed terör. ) to attack Turkey.

    Turkish trust towards Usa is zero.

  10. Under NATO nuclear weapons sharing, the United States has provided nuclear weapons for Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and Turkey to deploy and store.

  11. Turkey only fights terrorists,and they pick their battles very carefully. How many U.S-backed "opposition" forces are ISIS fighters? That's the only reason Turkey would want to wipe them out.Obama called his pet terrorists "moderate rebels".When did you replace "moderate rebels" with "opposition forces",and why did you think we wouldn't notice?

  12. The US backed Syrian is the Kurdish freedom fighters and they have helped the US the fight the Isis in the past. Now, Turkey wants to eliminate them and it shows that Turkey's Erdogan have no respect for the Americans, since US backed and trained them. The Kurdish fighters are not easy to eliminate and they fight like the lions in the desert. Turkey will pay a heavy price and the Kurdish will win eventually.

  13. Hehe, USA are running away. Kurds fought the war against ISIS insted of you (it was your mess, don't forget) and you now throwing them under the bus. USA are leaving its superpower position officialy. Corrupted state with chicken army. You are running away from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Ukraine. Kim is showing you his rocket middlefinger constantly. You are done, losers.

  14. Wow, another hell in middle east is being started, yet again the us betrays the kurds, biggest betrayal in history. This will probably lead to total war between kurds and turks. This is just crazy!

  15. the kurds scared the crap out of the greeks and romans in the BC years of history and if they are armed up they will fix turkey

  16. Now Turkey is entering a sovereign country wasn't that the reason why we went to war with Germany when they invaded neighboring countries during WW2 whats the difference?

  17. Good desicion by USA. We Turks dont want to harm American soldiers. If they didnt move we would have hit them mistakenly.

  18. This is extremely confusing. The Kurds are allies of USA against ISIS. If USA decides to step aside and let Turkey butcher the Kurds. It's gonna be a massacre. And what about the thousands of ISIS fighters still in prison with the Kurds that they captured in the last 2 years. On the other hand Kurdish fighters how ever righteous they might be in terms of the more evil ISIS. They are still an armed militia who can be a menace in the future. So it is very difficult situation in the coming weeks and months as this offensive begins.

  19. Turns out the US done what it always does Use the Kurds then abandon them to the mad man of Turkey Turkey are not NATO allies any longer Can't believe Trump as folded straight away What a prat Ou4 real ally the Kurds left to be destroyed again No one 5rusts US any more

  20. ممكن دعموني واشتراكو بقناتي فضلاً وليس أمراً 👍🔔

  21. But that's the thing he's not acting like a NATO ally he's acting like he's making new friends with Russia and Iran and he's always attacking Israel verbally so what kind of a ally act's like that?

  22. Well the Kurds are a floating nation without land and living in between the domestic laws of at least 3 other nations which actually impose their own legislations and priviledges on the Kurds.

    The UN on the other hand after the WW stablished as a core resolution to all democratic countries (a mandate that is shared by NATO as well) to ensure global human rights , freedom and equality to all people and the Kurds is one of the remaining cases after the reorganization of the world that took place during the WW. So ithe US and NATO are not the only ones involved but the UN as well.

  23. That's to show these fox host have no idea about ,Turkey have the second largest military force in NATO ,and if you dont know that then you have no idea about the Cuban crisis, and why Turkey is a NATO member and why Russia invad Afghanistan and why the u.s support the mujahedeen fighters, as a journalist one would think they have some clue as to why is Turkey a NATO allies

  24. What would have the US done if they were in Erdogans shoes?! Living in such a tense region?! Let me answer: Bomb the whole region, right?! Erdogan does what must be done, secure his borders from any outside threats without bombing the region!!!

  25. my heart breaks for my Kurdish brothers and sisters as I write this. America played a cruel and sinister trick on them by forcing them to take down their defences in the promise of defending them against Turkey. they are now defenceless and will be wiped out.

  26. The US and the EU have allowed Turkey to enter Syria. This means that ISIS will wake up and growing again. When ISIS wakes up again, people from the EU will join their caliphate. It also means that there will be new bombs in Europe and USA. And millions of people will conquer Europe from Syria. I wish Europeans to succeed with new bombs from ISIS terrorists. The EU will punish itself in the end.
    Congratulations EU and USA.

  27. These countries complain about U.S. presence and action or inaction but when we pull out they all start pissing their pants. Time to bring our money and troops back.

  28. Withdraw with a massive air operation. Withdraw indefinitely however. Transfer the prisoners to the European Union. They're their prisoners anyway…

  29. Did you taste this turkey before sending it out? Everyone come here, just taste that. What does it need?
    It needs more MOAB chef❗️

  30. All American money is now donated to the Kurds in Syria. We will seize them all as spoils. Javelin systems, himars, radars, air defence systems, rifles, ammo, bombs, howitzers. ++ As usual, America used Kurds as condoms. He earned their trust by giving them money and weapons, then used them and threw them in the trash. He is not stupid enough to confront the great Turkish army and state.

    In military and economic terms; Türkiye is the America of the Middle East.

  31. The Kurds were instrumental in winning the war against ISIS, and now they are abandoned. This basically means that allies cannot trust the US anymore.

  32. Remeber folks WE (THE USA) Have nukes there with est 2000 Service men& women. That Needs to be protected & watch close 😀🇺🇸

  33. ME is ready for a major war like Europe's WWs, the West and Russia should prepare for it to prevent propagation and colaterals.

  34. Turkish PRESIDENT is possibly the ANTICHRIST in Bible prophecy. WE ARE LOOKING AT BIBLE PROPHECY BEING FULFILLED RIGHT NOW.

  35. The truth of the matter is TRUMP HAS DONE A PRIVATE DEAL WITH THE TURKISH LEADER………I bet you any amount of money………The Turkish leader has put $100 million – $200 Million in some private offshore bank account for THE SCUMBAG IN CHIEF!!!

  36. The larges country in the future to be feared Turkey!
    Gelecekte korkulacak en büyük ülke Türkiye!
    Das größte land in der zukunft der Türkei zu befürchten!
    *Korkma, sönmez bu şafaklarda yüzen al sancak; Sönmeden yurdumun üstünde tüten en son ocak. O benim milletimin yıldızıdır, parlayacak; O benimdir, o benim milletimindir ancak.
    Çatma, kurban olayım çehreni ey nazlı hilâl! Kahraman ırkıma bir gül… ne bu şiddet bu celâl? Sana olmaz dökülen kanlarımız sonra helâl, Hakkıdır, Hakk’a tapan, milletimin istiklâl.
    Ben ezelden beridir hür yaşadım, hür yaşarım. Hangi çılgın bana zincir vuracakmış? Şaşarım! Kükremiş sel gibiyim; bendimi çiğner, aşarım; Yırtarım dağları, enginlere sığmam, taşarım.
    Garb’ın âfâkını sarmışsa çelik zırhlı duvar; Benim iman dolu göğsüm gibi serhaddim var. Ulusun, korkma! Nasıl böyle bir îmânı boğar, "Medeniyet!" dediğin tek dişi kalmış canavar?
    Arkadaş! Yurduma alçakları uğratma sakın; Siper et gövdeni, dursun bu hayâsızca akın. Doğacaktır sana va’dettiği günler Hakk’ın… Kim bilir, belki yarın… belki yarından da yakın.
    Bastığın yerleri "toprak!" diyerek geçme, tanı! Düşün altındaki binlerce kefensiz yatanı. Sen şehîd oğlusun, incitme, yazıktır atanı; Verme, dünyâları alsan da, bu cennet vatanı.
    Kim bu cennet vatanın uğruna olmaz ki fedâ? Şühedâ fışkıracak, toprağı sıksan şühedâ! Cânı, cânânı, bütün varımı alsın da Hudâ, Etmesin tek vatanımdan beni dünyâda cüdâ.
    Ruhumun senden, İlâhî, şudur ancak emeli: Değmesin ma’bedimin göğsüne nâ-mahrem eli! Bu ezanlar-ki şehâdetleri dînin temeli- Ebedî yurdumun üstünde benim inlemeli
    O zaman vecd ile bin secde eder –varsa- taşım; Her cerîhamdan, İlâhî, boşanıp kanlı yaşım, Fışkırır rûh-i mücerred gibi yerden na’şım; O zaman yükselerek Arş’a değer, belki başım.
    Dalgalan sen de şafaklar gibi ey şanlı hilâl; Olsun artık dökülen kanlarımın hepsi helâl. Ebediyen sana yok, ırkıma yok izmihlâl: Hakkıdır, hür yaşamış bayrağımın hürriyet; Hakkıdır, Hakk’a tapan milletimin istiklâl!*

    Don't be afraid, the starboard that floats at these dawns will not extinguish; The last stove on my land before it goes out. He is the star of my nation, he will shine; He's mine, he's my nation. Don't crack, I'm the victim, coy crescent! A rose to my heroic race… what is this violence? Our blood will not shed after you halal, Right is, worshiped right, the independence of my nation. I have lived free from time immemorial, I live free. What crazy crap is gonna hit me? I'm surprised! I'm like a roaring flood; I chew me, I transcend; I'll tear apart mountains, exceed the heavens and still gush out. If the armor of Garb is surrounded by steel armored wall; I have serhaddim like my faithful chest. Your nation, don't be afraid! How strangles such a sign, "Civilization!" The only monster you've got left? Friend! Don't let the scoundrels into the country; Barricade your body, let alone this indecent flock. The days that He promises you will be born by Hakk,… Who knows, maybe tomorrow… maybe closer than tomorrow. Where you step "earth!" Diagnosis! Think of thousands of uncovered beneath. You are the son of a martyr; But may He not deprive me of my one true homeland for the world. Who would not be sacrificed for the sake of the heavenly homeland that? To gush Martyrs land tighter the şüheda! Can, can, can take all my existence Hudha, Do not let me in the world from my only homeland. My soul is from you, the Divine, but it is a desire: Do not touch the hand of my master's intimate hand! These call to prayer – the foundation of the martyrdom – should be my moaning over my Eternal home Then, he will prostrate a thousand with prostration – if any – carry; Divine, bloody age from every surah, divorced from the ground, such as the soul of Fışkırır mûr-i mücerred; Then my head maybe worth rose Throne. O glorious crescent at dawn on you as fluctuating; Now get all my lawful bloodshed. Eternally no to you, no race is izmihlâl: Right, free lived the freedom of my flag; Right is, the independence of the nation worshiped Hakk!

  37. turkey just attacked lmao what a great deal maker. every country is exploiting this moron. Trump as ruined every relationship with most major nation. Trump killed american leadership.

  38. According to agreements after WW1, if the Iraq divided Turkey will have right to get into North Iraq,before ww1 Iraq was part of Turkey.

  39. Sorry, everybody is assuming that Trump means what he says over withdrawing troops from Syria. Perhaps, like when asking China to investigate Biden he is only joking. We had better ask Jordan as he always seems to know when the President is joking and when he isn't. It would be a funny joke on the Kurds if he didn't really mean it. Perhaps when he threatens to obliterate the Turkish economy Trump doesn't mean that either. Gee, no one knew foreign policy was difficult.

  40. Turkey has not been very cooperative with the US in the past decade its time we taught them some manners in cooperation. Send support to the Kurds to fight against Turkey

  41. The withdrawal of the US-troops from Syria is one more major victory for Putin. I can see him pulling the strings of his puppet.
